Interview Roundup: Wright, Grint and Felton

We have a few quick interviews to update you on tonight. First actor Rupert Grint is the subject of two new interviews: here with, and video of his guest appearance on the CBS Morning Show.

Next, thanks to who let us know about a nice video interview with actress Bonnie Wright who discusses filming the attack on the Burrow, and notes her favorite part of Hogwarts castle is the Gryffindor common room.

Finally, the Hero Complex Blog in the LA Times has another installment in their Harry Potter series, this being an interview with Tom Felton.

DM: What do you remember about shooting that climactic scene on the Astronomy Tower? TF: It was intense!  When we shot it I was surrounded by the cream of British actors [Alan Rickman and Helena Bonham Carter were present, as was the Dublin-born Gambon], and the scene itself is very intense. There’s lots of shouting, screaming and tears. We had good fun with that one. It was the scene I was most looking forward to.

DM: What was working with Gambon like? TF: I was obviously very scared about having a one-on-one scene with him. But early on we met up and we got on really well. He’s a character beyond character, anyone will tell you that. He’s got more stories than an encyclopedia and he’s a wealth of knowledge and comedy. It’s just a joy to be around him. Every time there was a break, I would take it as a good opportunity to have a cup of tea with him, asking questions and stuff like that.

DM: His Dumbledore is a lot more intense than in the books, isn’t he?TF: Yeah, I was slightly afraid that he was going to be cold or stone-faced. But he’s far from it. Honestly, he’s like an 18-year-old and he loves it.

The movie is as usual… good and bad… Devotees of canon will be outraged… Film buffs will be surprised by how good it really is…

i Saw it!!! It Was very good. It did stray away from the book, however i think this one did it justice. it is a movie so they do have to cut different things,
everyone should hurry up and go see it.

I’ve seen today (just got home @ 10:45pm) OMG there are 3 theater/auditorium that was showing the HPHBP and it was FULL the ambiance was full of exitement. Viewers, clapped at the start and end of the movie, lot’s of laughing, though (comedic part). But, me, quite frustrated. I wish to see the part when the students battled with the DE and Harry gave Felix Felicis to Hermione, Ginny and Ron. It covered mostly of the teenage angst and hormones. Happy to see the movie after the long wait but not so satisffied.
